Creating Point Names Automatically

Last Modified: October 16, 2020

Create a point name pattern to automatically generate point mappings for assets.

  1. Click Navigation menu »System»Historian.
  2. On the Point Name Patterns tab, select an asset type and click Edit.
  3. Enter the static text and tokens you want InsightCM to replace with dynamic information about the tag source. The following list contains tokens you can include in point name patterns. Surround each token with curly braces, as shown. Asset name values are static within historian points and source names.

    Historian points and source names do not reflect any changes you make to an asset name.

    Token Description
    {name} Asset name
    {path} Asset path including all parent assets
    {feat} Feature or spectral band name
    {unit} Units of the feature or spectral band

    You can replace the names of features and spectral bands in the InsightCM Server with custom names.

Now that you have created a new point name pattern, add point mappings for equipment assets.
